  • 2 cups fresh blackberries (thawed blackberries can also be used)

  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (chopped ripe tomatoes can be substituted)
  • 1 large or 2 small green onions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts or walnut pieces
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (add more to taste)

Preparation:
1. Add spinach, blackberries, cheese, cherry tomatoes, green onion, and walnuts to a large serving bowl. Toss to blend well.
